Pandaland II

Population8.099 billion

Capitalthe Bamboo Forest
LeaderGiant Panda


The Black and White Dynasty of Pandaland II is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Giant Panda with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.099 billion Pandas enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Bamboo Forest. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Panda economy, worth a remarkable 3,936 trillion Bamboos a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 486,014 Bamboos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", eminent domain has been abolished, and CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears. Crime is totally unknown. Pandaland II's national animal is the Giraffe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bambooism.

Pandaland II is ranked 434th in the world and 13th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 5,854 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
